2This September, in preparation for Mesothelioma Awareness Day on September 26, 2015,  the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) is bringing social media advocacy to a new level!

Each Tuesday during the month of September from 12-1 PM ET, ADAO will be hosting #ENDMeso Twitter Chats where victims, experts, advocates, and concerned citizens can connect, share, and spread asbestos awareness. Each one-hour Twitter Chat will feature a topic or question of particular importance to asbestos aawareness that will be discussed by our Twitter community, sparking a global conversation about the dangers of asbestos.

ADAO needs you, the voice of the victims and the concerned citizens of the world, to join in this conversation and bring asbestos awareness to light! Currently in the United States, we are witnessing one of the most crucial moments in Toxic Chemical reform and it is the closest we have been to an asbestos ban since 1989. We need your voice, your heart, and your thoughts to raise awareness and build support to end this man made tragedy, especially at this defining historical moment. Join in by tweeting your thoughts to our topic of the day and responding to other participants. Be sure to use the hashtag #ENDMeso and connect with ADAO on twitter at @Linda_ADAO! Our first Chat will take place on Tuesday, September 1st and begin with “How has asbestos or mesothelioma impacted your life?”

See below for your official invitation and details for the month of September Twitter Chats. Thank you for your support!
